Zakah on commercial commodities should be given if a Hawl passes on the value at which it was first bought
Zakah on commercial commodities should be given if a Hawl (one lunar year calculated from the time a property reaches the minimum amount upon which Zakah is due) passes, Zakah will be on the value with which it was first bought. Zakah of such commodities should be evaluated after completing a Hawl depending on its price of purchase and 2.5% should be paid as Zakah.Whatever has been sold in credit, 2.5% is obligatory on this deferred price, as Zakah, if the debtor is solvent. May Allah grant us success. Peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad and upon his family and Companions!
